Digital teaching aids may be available for this title. All instructor requests are reviewed by our team before the files are made accessible.
This casebook was conceived as a vehicle for introducing students to a select number of judicial decisions that have played a substantial role in shaping the fabric of contemporary criminal law in Canada. The Supreme Court of Canada is continuously developing and shaping the Criminal law and therefore this revised edition was created to keep abreast of the tide of change. The fourth edition of Canadian Criminal Cases: Selected Highlights contains 35 decisions delivered by the Supreme Court of Canada. Each of these cases has, to some extent, clarified the basic principles of Canadian criminal law and constitutes an important precedent.
- *NEW* Each case is concluded with a series of critical thinking questions that ask students to apply their learning from the presented case material.
- 14 entirely new cases that have shaped Canadian Criminal Law have been included
